Blessed are You, Adonai our God,
God of our fathers and mothers.
God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob.

God of Sarah, God of Rebecca, God of Rachel and God of Leah.

The great, mighty and awesome God, the transcendent God,
Who bestows lovingkindness, creates everything out of love,
Remembers the love of our fathers and mothers,

and brings redemption to their children’s children for the sake of the Divine Name.

(Between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur:)
Remember us for life O Sovereign, who delights in life;
and inscribe us in the Book of Life, for Your sake, Living God.

Sovereign, Deliverer, Helper and Shield,

Blessed are You, Adonai, Sarah’s Helper, Abrahams’s Shield.

You are forever mighty, Adonai;
You give life to all,

Winter: You cause the wind to shift and rain to fall.
Summer: You rain dew upon us.

You sustain life through love,
giving life to all through great compassion,
Supporting the fallen, healing the sick, freeing the captive,
Keeping faith with those who sleep in the dust.
Who is like You, Source of mighty acts?
Who resembles You, a Sovereign who takes and gives life,
Causing deliverance to spring up and faithfully giving life to all?

(Between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur)
Who is like You, Compassionate God,

who mercifully remembers your creatures for life?

Blessed are you Adonai, who gives life to all.
